ham Mamman Sani's work Taaritt actually rings of Mohammad Munir and his Nubian Synth Pop that I grew up listening to in Egypt. With Taaritt, Mamman Sani has already passed the torch, and the culture of the Swahili peoples is not going to fall upon deaf ears-- because oh lordy, this album can cure deafness. Favorite track: Ci Da Dy.

matthew_lorelei This is music from the future. Can't get enough of it. I want to understand more about how this music was recorded, found, and shared. Fascinating stuff.

Martyn Pepperell Mamman Sani's retooling of traditional folk songs as cosmic synth jams (for relaxation only) is as compelling and evocative as it gets. Alongside the works of the likes of Haliu Mergia, his songs are memories of a potential tomorrow that continues to be a wellspring for ancient futurism minded artists across the globe. Favorite track: Dangay Kotyo.

about

Cosmic synth. Polyphonic analog synthesizers and drum machines interpret ancient Saharan folk ballads in an imagined science fiction future. A proposed relaxation guide, sonically lying somewhere between ambient library music and minimal wave. Recorded in Niger and France in the late 1980s and never before released.
